Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

CD player of a COMPACT DISC STEREO SYSTEM fails to operate.

The five disc CD player operated normally for the ten years I've had it. Turned it on the next day and it did'nt work. The change disc door operates - the change disc function operates - but - the discs do not play. All other units of the complete system are OK which include - Phono - Tape - Radio Tuner. Do I have a serious problem - or - can it be fixed by my mechanically inclined self ?

There are a couple of questions that need to be answered in order for me to get an idea of the problem and its solution.

1) What is the make and model please?

2) When you load the discs, do you hear them load up one at a time without them actually playing?

3) Is there an indication on the front stating "no disc" or any other message?

CD player doesn't work . the door to the 6 disc changer won't even open

This happens when the disc loading mechanism becomes faulty. when this happens the mechanism fails to load the disc to the right place thereby not allowing the optical lens which is supposed to read the disc to be able to read from the disc. All you have to do is get the loading motor and mechanism serviced and checked. This should get the door to the loader to start opening and in turn solve the working issue.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

The 5-CD player component of my stereo reads out "Disc not read" from all 5 slots, no matter which way I load the CD. It would not accept my CD cleaner disk. The system was in unprotected...

There are many reasons why it fails to operate correctly. When electronics lay around for a long period of time unprotected from temperature changes and climate conditions; the interior parts tend to expand and contract; therefore become useless. If moisture invades sensitive circuit boards and electrical components, the resistance levels change and many times cause problems. Additional, heads on a CD/DVD player become coated with debris and can no longer read the data on a disc. They can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and air dried, which may work for you. Clean it yourself and save the money.

Most problems like that are caused by a dirty lens on the player itself. If cleaning doesn't solve it there could be damage to the lens or some other kind of fault.

The stereo works fine but i cannot eject the cd's

I just had the same problem with the same model. Disc five was saying no disc and would not play any other discs. I opened the radio and found the the CD tray was missing a piece for disc five. You have to put the disc tray back into the holder to fix it. Make sure it locks in place and you should be able to get the rest to work.

Sony compact disc player initializing

Have you tried pressing hte RESET switch?? It's behind the removeable front of the stereo, use a biro or something and hold it in for a bit.

Failing that, check that there isn't a CD already in it, could be a dodgy CD?
